Countdown to the Next Chapter

Today is my final day working at my job of 20 years… and five months, but who’s counting? (If you don’t know what I’m talking about, click here)

I plan to take somewhere in the neighborhood of a week off to get some rest after burning the candle at both ends for so long, though I’ll still be blogging on a fairly regular basis at Michelle’s and a little here during “vacation” time (I’m not traveling anywhere… I’ll just be wandering around the house for a few days in a silk bathrobe and smoking a pipe like Hef).

After that I have some things brewing that I’ll announce soon enough but can’t yet. Until then I’ll have much more time to focus on blogging, and I’m looking forward to saving some serious money on gas (I drive over 300 miles a week going to and from the TV station).

Soon I’m meeting some friends for a farewell drink, and I doubt the word “drink” will stay in the singular for long but we’ll see.

I’ll be back here tomorrow, and feel free to discuss whatever’s in the news. If I get a chance I’m going to try and get to this as soon as possible.

Have a great Friday, all! As always, thanks for reading and keeping the place lively.
